Upgrades

Unfortunately, the RAM and processor are not upgradeable in the MacBook Air. However, that does not mean the MacBook Air is completely non-upgradeable. The following major parts can be upgraded:

  • Hard Drive: 80 or 120 GB hard drives came standard with the MacBook Air. You can replace your 120 GB drive if it ever fails.
  • Battery: Replacing the battery requires the removal of ten screws. The battery can be replaced in less than 10 minutes.

Identification and Background

The MacBook Air was introduced to the masses on January 15, 2008. It measures only 0.76″ in thickness, a hair thicker than the diameter of a dime. However, Apple has managed to pack a 13.3-inch display, a full-size keyboard, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 802.11n Wi-Fi into a package that weighs 3 pounds.

Use the laptop identification system to help you identify your machine. MacBooks tend to look very similar, and it’s important to know which machine you have before ordering any replacement parts.

There are a number of downsides to the portable nature of the MacBook Air. The RAM is soldered to the logic board, and there are no upgrade slots — which means the user is stuck with 2 GB RAM. There is no built-in optical drive, preventing users from easily restoring their system. Worst of all (at least from a troubleshooting and repairing perspective), the lack of FireWire ports prevents utilization of the incredibly useful Target Disk Mode, limiting the ability to restore the Air’s operating system and perform diagnostics without removing the hard drive.
